Hi Jim,

Without getting into a long reply right now-time is premium at
the moment - you are making my point for me.

To my mind, religion, theology or intelligent design are the
result of some intervention some thousands or tens of thousands
of years ago-maybe even longer. Our ancestors had no choice back
then, having no other frames of reference but to revere the
actions and technology of perhaps some ET appearences and blend
that into their own superstitious relief patterns.

It's no secret that I have no truck with religion and its

Man's unfortunate talent and penchant for reverence and to
revere has gotten us into war, inqusition and the loss of human
life while insuring riches and power for the few.

Must go.
